Description

  The present invention relates to a packet data service provided in a communication system, and more particularly, to a mobile terminal that transmits control information associated with service packet data using separate physical channels for receiving the packet data and associated control information. The present invention relates to a method and apparatus for transmitting data to and receiving data from a mobile terminal.

  UMTS (Universal Mobile Telecommunications System) is a third generation mobile communication system developed from a global system for mobile communication systems, which is a European standard. UMTS aims to provide enhanced mobile communication services based on GSM core network and wideband code division multiple access technology.

  A conventional UMTS network structure 1 is shown in FIG. One mobile terminal or user equipment (UE) 2 is connected to the core network 4 through a UTRAN (UTMS terrestrial radio access network) 6. The UTRAN 6 configures, maintains and manages a radio access bearer for communicating between the UE 2 and the core network 4 in order to satisfy the highest quality of service.

  The UTRAN 6 includes a plurality of radio network subsystems 8 each including a plurality of base stations 12 or radio network controllers (RNCs) 10 for “Node B”. An RNC 10 connected to a predetermined base station 12 is a control RNC for allocating and managing common resources provided to an arbitrary number of UEs operating in one cell. The control RNC 10 controls traffic load, cell congestion, and acceptance of new radio links. Each Node B 12 receives an uplink signal from UE 2 and transmits a downlink signal to the UE. Each Node B 12 acts as an access point for linking UE 2 to UTRAN 6, and RNC 10 acts as an access point for linking a corresponding Node B to core network 4.

  Within the radio network subsystem 8 of the UTRAN 6, the serving RNC 10 is an RNC that manages dedicated radio resources for providing services to a specific UE 2 and is an access point to the core network 4 for data transmission to the specific UE. is there. All other RNCs 10 connected to UE2 are drift RNCs. Only one serving RNC connects the UE to the core network 4 via the UTRAN 4.

  The interface between the UE 2 and the UTRAN 6 is realized by a radio interface protocol set by the 3GPP radio access network specification that describes the physical layer L1, the data link layer L2, and the network layer L3. The control plane is used to carry control information for interface maintenance and management, and the user plane is used to carry data traffic such as voice signals and Internet protocol packet transmissions. A conventional radio interface protocol architecture is shown in FIG.

  The physical PHY layer provides an information transmission service to an upper layer and is linked to a medium access control (MAC) layer through a transport channel. The MAC layer includes a MAC-b entity, a MAC-d entity, and a MAC-c / sh entity.

  The MAC-b entity manages the broadcast channel as a transport channel in charge of broadcasting system information. The MAC-c / sh entity is a common transport channel, eg forward access, shared with other UEs 2 in the cell so that one MAC-c / sh entity exists in each cell and is located in the serving RNC 10 Manage channels and downlink shared channels. Therefore, each UE2 comprises one MAC-c / sh entity. The MAC-d entity manages a dedicated transport channel for a specific UE 2 so that the MAC-d entity is located in the serving RNC 10 and each UE comprises one MAC-d entity.

  An RLC (radio link control) layer supports reliable data transmission and is responsible for segmentation and concatenation of RLC service data units transmitted from higher layers. The size of the RLC service data unit is adjusted to suit the processing capability in the RLC layer, and the header is added to form the RLC protocol data unit for delivery to the MAC layer.

  The service data forming unit and the protocol data forming unit transmitted from the upper layer are stored in the RLC buffer of the RLC layer. The RLC service is used on the user plane by a specific protocol layer of the service, ie, broadcast / multicast control (BMC) protocol and packet data convergence protocol (PDCP), and wireless on the control plane for signaling transport. Used by resource control RRC.

  The BMC layer schedules cell broadcast messages communicated from the core network so that the cell broadcast messages can be broadcast to the corresponding UE 2 in the appropriate cell. For example, header information such as a message identifier, a sequence number, and a coding scheme is added to the cell broadcast message to generate a broadcast / multicast control message for distribution to the RLC layer.

  The RLC layer adds RLC header information and transmits the message formed thereby as a logical channel to the MAC layer via the common traffic channel. The MAC layer maps the common traffic channel as a transport channel to the forward access channel. The transport channel is mapped to the second common control physical channel as a physical channel.

  The PDCP layer operates to efficiently transmit data through a wireless interface having a relatively small bandwidth. The PDCP layer uses a network compression protocol such as Ipv4 or Ipv6, and uses a header compression technique for removing unnecessary control information used in a wire network. Since only information essential to the header is included in the transmission, the PDCP layer can increase the transmission efficiency.

  The RRC layer operates the network layer (L3) control plane signaling between UE2 and UTRAN6 and controls transport and physical channels to set up, reconfigure and release radio bearers. The radio bearer is a service provided by a lower layer, for example, an RLC layer or a MAC layer, for data transmission between the UE 2 and the UTRAN 6.

  Radio bearer configuration determines the regular features of the protocol layers and channels necessary to provide a specific service, and sets the service parameters and operation methods. A UE is said to be in an RRC connected state if the connection is set up to allow transmission between a particular UE 2 and the RRC layer of UTRAN6. If there is no such connection, UE2 is in an idle state.

  In addition to the aforementioned entities in the MAC layer, the MAC-m entity supports the transmission of user planes and control planes for point-to-multipoint services, eg MBMS (multimedia broadcast / multicast service), and MBMS related transport channels Provided for manipulating scheduling. MBMS is a streaming or background service provided to multiple UEs 2 using downlink dedicated MBMS radio bearers that utilize both point-to-multipoint and point-to-point radio bearer services.

  As the name suggests, MBMS is implemented in broadcast or multicast mode. The broadcast mode is for transmitting multimedia data to all UEs 2 in a broadcast area, for example, a domain where a broadcast service is available. The multicast mode is for transmitting multimedia data to a specific UE2 group in a multicast area, for example, a domain where a multicast service is available.

  When the UMTS network 1 provides a specific MBMS using a multicast mode, the UE 2 to be served must first complete a subscription procedure that establishes a relationship between the service provider and each UE. Thereafter, the subscriber UE 2 confirms the subscription from the core network 4 and receives a service announcement including, for example, a list of services to be provided.

  Subscriber UE2 must “join” or join a multicast group of UEs that receive a specific MBMS and notify the network of the intention to receive the service. Termination of service participation is called “withdrawal”. The operation of joining, joining and leaving is performed by each UE 2 at any time before, during or after data transmission.

  While a specific MBMS is in progress, one or more service sessions occur sequentially, the core network 4 notifies the session start RNC 10 when data is generated by the MBMS data source, and the data transfer is interrupted to the session stop RNC 10 Notify when to be done. Therefore, data transmission for a particular MBMS is performed at the time between the start and stop of the session during the time when only the participating UEs can receive the data.

  In order to successfully achieve data transmission, UTRAN 6 receives a session start notification from core network 4 and transmits an MBMS notification to a predetermined participating UE 2 in the cell to indicate that the data transmission is imminent To do. The UTRAN 6 counts the number of predetermined participating UEs 2 in the cell using the MBMS notification.

  The counting process determines whether the radio bearer providing a particular MBMS is a point-to-multipoint transmission or a point-to-point transmission. In order to select a specific service MBMS radio bearer, UTRAN 6 sets a threshold corresponding to the UE2 count, sets a point-to-point MBMS radio bearer for a low UE count, and point-to-multipoint for a high UE count. Set up MBMS radio bearer.

  The determination of the radio bearer is based on whether or not the participating UE 2 needs to be in the RRC connected state. When the point-to-point radio bearer is set, all the participating UEs 2 are in the RRC connection state. When the point-to-multipoint radio bearer is set up, since the point-to-multipoint radio bearer can be received by the UE in an idle state, not all the participating UEs 2 need to be in the RRC connected mode.

  Referring to FIG. 3, a conventional architecture of the MBMS support MAC layer is shown. The MAC-c / sh entity supports two logical channels, specifically MCCH (MAC control channel) and MTCH (MBMS traffic channel).

  One MCCH channel exists in each cell, and one MTCH channel exists for each specific MBMS in a specific cell. All logical channels are mapped to transport channels such as FACH (forward access channel) and physical channels such as SCCPCH (secondary control physical channel).

  An example of conventional logical channel mapping is shown in FIG. 4A. FIG. 4A shows a mapping structure of logical channels MTCH and MCCH, where the logical channels are mapped to other physical channels, for example, first and second physical channels SCCPCH1 and SCCPCH2, respectively.

  FIG. 4B shows a conventional example of transmitting MBMS data for specific MBMS and control information related to the service. As shown in FIG. 4B, the logical channel MCCH is a point-to-multipoint downlink channel for transmitting MBMS control plane information, and the logical channel MTCH is a point-to-multipoint down for transmitting MBMS user plane information. Link channel.

  Since the logical channels MCCH and MTCH are each mapped to a unique physical channel, the MBMS-supporting UE2 must receive two physical channels at the same time in order to receive the service. For example, simultaneous transmission of user information and control information such as MBMS data via the MTCH channel and MBMS control information via the MCCH channel.

  However, UE2 cannot support simultaneous reception of two different physical channels. Therefore, UE2 cannot receive any one of MBMS data or MBMS control information.

  Even assuming that UE2 can support simultaneous reception of two different physical channels, if reception of services is required in addition to MBMS, the UE actually needs to receive more than two physical channels simultaneously. Therefore, the request for simultaneous reception of the two logical channels MCCH and MTCH interferes with the enhanced UE2 operation.

  Accordingly, there is a need for a method and apparatus for enabling a mobile terminal that does not have the ability to receive two different physical channels simultaneously to receive services transmitted using at least two logical channels. The present invention is directed to these and other needs.

  The present invention is directed to a method and apparatus for transmitting and receiving service packet data and control information to / from a mobile terminal using separate physical channels for receiving packet data and associated control information, respectively. . In particular, the present invention is directed to a method and apparatus for enabling a mobile terminal that cannot receive two physical channels simultaneously to receive services using two physical channels.

The present invention relates to a method and apparatus for transmitting and receiving packet data and control information to and from a mobile terminal. Although the present invention will be described with respect to a mobile terminal, the present invention may be utilized whenever it is desired to provide a service using two physical channels to a mobile communication device that cannot receive two physical channels simultaneously. it can.

  In the following, for reference, the preferred embodiments of the present invention are disclosed in detail and shown in the drawings as examples. In the drawings, similar components are indicated using the same or similar drawing symbols.

(First embodiment)
As shown in FIGS. 5A and 5B, the first embodiment of the present invention relates to a method for transmitting and receiving control information related to a specific service, for example, MBMS. The method uses an MTCH control information indicator transmitted to the mobile terminal 2, eg, UE, on the MTCH channel. The mapping is based on the conventional mapping structure shown in FIG. 4A. Here, the logical channels MCCH and MTCH are mapped to specific physical channels such as SCCPCH1 and SCCPCH2, respectively.

  A control information indicator is transmitted over the MTCH channel so that UE 2 that cannot receive two physical channels simultaneously can receive both control information and data. The control information indicator includes information on the transmission of MBMS related control information and notifies participating (“join”) UEs 2 that MBMS related control information is transmitted over the MCCH channel. The control information indicator includes information regarding the transmission time and content of the MBMS-related control information to be transmitted. The MBMS related control information is related to a specific MBMS and / or other MBMS to which UE2 is a member.

  According to the first embodiment of the present invention, the MTCH channel is used to transmit specific MBMS data and control information indicator to the UE 2, and the MCCH channel is used to transmit MBMS related control information. Each transmission is non-simultaneous.

  FIG. 6 shows a method 50 for transmitting and receiving MBMS related data and control information according to the first embodiment of the present invention. The method 50 includes sequential steps S51-S60. Each of the UE2 L1 / L2 layer and the UTRAN6 L1 / L2 layer includes a physical layer, a MAC layer, an RLC layer, and a PDCP layer.

  The specific MBMS data is transmitted from the UTRAN6 L1 / L2 layer to the UE2 L1 / L2 layer via the specific MTCH channel in step S51, and the specific MTCH channel is received by the participating UEs. In step S52, the UTRAN6 RRC layer generates a control information indicator before transmitting the MBMS related control information through the MCCH channel, and transmits the control information indicator to the UTRAN L1 / L2 layer. In step S53, the UTRAN6 L1 / L2 layer transmits a control information indicator to the UE2 L1 / L2 layer via the same MTCH channel used to transmit the MBMS data in step S51.

  The UE2 L1 / L2 layer includes the received control information indicator, which is transmitted to the UE RRC layer in step S54. Information included in the control information indicator is used to determine whether or not UE2 has to receive MBMS related control information.

  If it is determined that the UE2 receives MBMS related control information, the first channel switching instruction from the UE RRC layer instructs the UE L1 / L2 layer, and the reception channel is switched to the MCCH channel in step S55. If it is determined that the UE2 does not receive the MBMS related control information, no instruction is given and the UE2 L1 / L2 layer continues to receive the MTCH channel.

  When the channel switching instruction is issued, the UE2 L1 / L2 layer moves from one physical channel to another physical channel, for example, from a physical channel to which an MTCH channel is mapped to a physical channel to which an MCCH channel is mapped, in step S56. Switch the receiving physical channel. After switching, the UE2 RRC layer may receive MBMS related control information transmitted from the UTRAN6 RRC layer through the MCCH channel in step S57.

  When the reception of the MBMS related control information is completed, the second channel switching instruction from the UE2 RRC layer instructs the UE L1 / L2 layer in step S58 to set the received physical channel to the physical channel to which the MTCH channel is mapped. Switch back.

(Second Embodiment)
As shown in FIGS. 7A and 7B, the second embodiment of the present invention relates to a method for transmitting and receiving control information related to a specific service, for example, MBMS. This method uses a control information indicator transmitted on the MTCH channel and a data reception indicator transmitted on the MCCH channel. The mapping is based on the conventional mapping structure illustrated in FIG. 4A. Here, the logical channels MCCH and MTCH are mapped to specific physical channels such as SCCPCH1 and SCCPCH2, respectively.

  A control information indicator is transmitted over the MTCH channel so that UE 2 which cannot receive two physical channels simultaneously can receive all control information and data. The control information indicator includes information related to the transmission of MBMS related control information, and notifies the participating (“join”) UE 2 that MBMS related control information is transmitted via the MCCH channel. The control information indicator includes information regarding the transmission time and content of the MBMS-related control information to be transmitted. The MBMS related control information is related to a specific MBMS and / or other MBMS to which UE2 is a member.

  According to the second embodiment of the present invention, the MTCH channel is used to transmit specific MBMS data and control information indicator to the UE2, and the MCCH channel is used to transmit MBMS related control information. The data reception indicator instructs the UE 2 having the received MBMS-related control information to receive MBMS data, and includes transmission time information and contents of MBMS data transmitted through the MTCH channel. In contrast to the first embodiment, the receiving channel is simultaneously switched to the MTCH channel after the reception of MBMS related control information, and the second embodiment is switched to the MTCH channel upon receiving a specific indication of the data reception indicator. For the purpose.

  The specific MBMS data is transmitted from the UTRAN6 L1 / L2 layer to the UE2 L1 / L2 layer via the specific MTCH channel in step S101, and the specific MTCH channel is received by the participating UEs. In step S102, the UTRAN 6 RRC layer generates a control information indicator before transmitting the MBMS related control information through the MCCH channel, and transmits the control information indicator to the UTRAN L1 / L2 layer. In step S103, the UTRAN6 L1 / L2 layer transmits a control information indicator to the UE2 L1 / L2 layer through the same MTCH channel used to transmit MBMS data in step S101.

  The UE2 L1 / L2 layer includes the received control information indicator, which is transmitted to the UE RRC layer in step S104. Information included in the control information indicator is used to determine whether or not UE2 has to receive MBMS related control information.

  If it is determined that the UE 2 receives MBMS related control information, the first channel switching instruction from the UE RRC layer instructs the UE L1 / L2 layer to switch the reception channel to the MCCH channel in step S105. If it is determined that the UE2 does not receive the MBMS related control information, no instruction is given and the UE2 L1 / L2 layer continues to receive the MTCH channel.

  If the channel switching instruction is issued, the UE2 L1 / L2 layer maps the reception physical channel from one physical channel to another physical channel, for example, the MCCH channel from the physical channel to which the MTCH channel is mapped, in step S106. Switch to physical channel. When switching is performed, the UE2 RRC layer may receive MBMS related control information transmitted from the UTRAN6 RRC layer through the MCCH channel in step S107.

  When the reception of the MBMS related control information is completed, the UTRAN 6 RRC layer transmits a data reception indicator to the UE 2 in step S108. Thereby, the UE2 RRC layer instructs to receive MBMS data. In response, the second channel switching instruction from the UE2 RRC layer instructs the UE2 L1 / L2 layer in step S109 to switch the received physical channel again to the physical channel to which the MTCH channel is mapped. In step S110, the UE2 L1 / L2 layer performs channel switching to switch the received physical channel back to the original physical channel, for example, from the physical channel to which the MCCH channel is mapped to the physical channel to which the MTCH channel is mapped.

(Third embodiment)
As shown in FIGS. 9A and 9B, the third embodiment of the present invention relates to a method for transmitting and receiving control information related to a specific service, for example, MBMS. This method uses MBMS data together with control information transmitted on the MTCH channel. The mapping is based on the conventional mapping structure illustrated in FIG. 4A, where the logical channels MCCH and MTCH are mapped to unique physical channels, eg, SCCPCH1 and SCCPCH2, respectively.

  The MTCH channel is used to transmit specific MBMS data and MBMS related control information to UE2. In contrast to the first and second embodiments, MBMS related control information is transmitted and received via the MCCH channel. In the third embodiment, MBMS related control information is transmitted and received through the same MTCH channel carrying MBMS data.

  FIG. 10 shows a method 200 for transmitting and receiving MBMS related data and control information according to a third embodiment of the present invention. Method 200 includes sequential steps S201-S205. Each of the UE2 L1 / L2 layer and the UTRAN6 L1 / L2 layer includes a physical layer, a MAC layer, an RLC layer, and a PDCP layer.

  The specific MBMS data is transmitted from the UTRAN6 L1 / L2 layer to the UE2 L1 / L2 layer via the specific MTCH channel in step S201, and the specific MTCH channel is received by the participating UEs. If MBMS related control information needs to be transmitted to UE2 during MBMS data transmission, the UTRAN6 RRC layer transmits the control information to the UTRAN6 L1 / L2 layer in step S202. The UTRAN6 L1 / L2 layer then transmits control information to the UE2 L1 / L2 layer via the same MTCH channel in step S203.

  MBMS related control information is transmitted from the UTRAN6 L1 / L2 layer to the UE2 L1 / L2 layer using a control PDU (protocol data unit) of the user plane. The UTRAN6 L1 / L2 layer configures the control PDU to include MBMS related control information. The control PDU is communicated to the UE2 L1 / L2 layer using a user plane protocol, where the control PDU is disassembled to obtain the included control information.

  The user plane that configures or disassembles the control PDU is the PDCP or MAC layer, but may be an L2 sublayer higher than the PDCP layer. In step S204, the UE2 L1 / L2 layer transmits the received MBMS related control information to the UE RRC layer. If the control information is successfully transmitted, the UTRAN6 L1 / L2 layer transmits MBMS data via the MTCH channel for reception by the UE2 L1 / L2 layer in step S205.

(Fourth embodiment)
As shown in FIGS. 11A and 11B, the fourth embodiment according to the present invention relates to a method for transmitting and receiving control information related to a specific service, for example, MBMS. This method uses a control information indicator transmitted via the MCCH channel, and the MCCH channel is mapped to the same physical channel along with the MTCH channel.

  In particular, FIG. 11A shows that the main MCH channel is mapped to the main SCCPCH channel and the MTCH channel is also mapped to the main SCCPCH channel, and FIG. 11B shows the MBMS related control information, MCCH1 channel transmitted through the main MCCP channel. The control information indicator transmitted via the MBMS data transmitted via the MTCH channel. The control information indicator notifies UE2 that the control information is transmitted via the main MCCH channel.

  Referring to FIG. 11A, at least one MTCH and MCCH channel are mapped to physical channels, and one specific MCCH channel is set as a main MCCH channel for a corresponding cell. MBMS-related control information for a specific MBMS is transmitted through the main MCCH channel, and the main MCCH channel and the MTCH channel through which MBMS data for the specific MBMS is transmitted are mapped to specific physical channels. For example, the main MCH channel is mapped to a main physical channel, eg, SCCPCH, and the MTCH channel on which MBMS data is transmitted is mapped to the second physical channel, eg, SCCPCH1.

  The control information indicator for notifying UE 2 of the transmission of MBMS related control information is transmitted via the MCCH channel mapped to the same physical channel as the MTCH channel transmitting MBMS data is mapped. For example, the control information indicator for a specific MBMS is transmitted on MCCH1, the MBMS data for the specific MBMS is transmitted on MTCH1, and both MCCH1 and MTCH1 are mapped to SCCPCH1. By mapping MCCH1 and MTCH1 from the physical channel SCCPCH to which the main MCCH channel is mapped to the same unique physical channel, the control information indicator is successfully transmitted prior to the transmission of MBMS related control information via the main MCCH channel. Is done.

  For all MCCH channels different from the main MCCH channel in a specific cell, one MCCH channel exists for each specific MBMS service and for each MTCH channel, or at least one channel is mapped It is set to exist for each physical channel to be performed. The MTCH channel is mapped to the physical channel to which the main MCCH channel is mapped.

Method 300 includes sequential steps S301-S308. Each of the UE2 L1 / L2 layer and the UTRAN6 L1 / L2 layer includes a physical layer, a MAC layer, an RLC layer, and a PDCP layer.

  The specific MBMS data is transmitted from the UTRAN6 L1 / L2 layer to the UE2 L1 / L2 layer in step S301. MBMS data is transmitted via an MTCH channel, eg, MTCH1, and a specific MTCH channel is received by a participating UE.

  In step S302, the UTRAN 6 RRC layer generates a control information indicator before transmitting MBMS related control information via the main MCCH channel, and transmits this to the UE2 L1 / L2 layer via the MCCH channel. In particular, the control information indicator is transmitted on the physical channel in which the MTCH1 channel is set, for example, the MCH1 channel mapped to the SCCPCH1. The information in the control information indicator is used to determine whether UE2 has to receive MBMS related control information.

  If it is determined that UE2 receives MBMS-related control information, the first channel switching instruction from the UE RRC layer instructs the UE L1 / L2 layer to map the reception channel and the main MCCH channel in step S303. Switch to a channel, eg SCCPCH. If it is determined that the UE2 does not receive the MBMS related control information, no instruction is given and the UE2 L1 / L2 layer continues to receive the MTCH channel mapped to the physical channel SCCPCH1.

  When the channel switching instruction is issued, the UE L1 / L2 layer switches the received physical channel to the main SCCPCH to which the physical channel, for example, the main MCH channel is mapped, in step S304. When switched, the UE2 RRC layer may receive MBMS related control information transmitted from the UTRAN6 RRC layer through the MCCH channel in step S305.

  When the transmission of the MBMS related control information is completed, in step S306, the UE L1 / L2 layer instructs to switch the received physical channel to the SCCPCH1 channel again by a second channel switching instruction from the UE2 RRC layer. In step S307, the UE2 L1 / L2 layer switches the received physical channel back to the original physical channel, for example, to switch from the main SCCPCH physical channel to which the main MCH channel is mapped to the primary SCCPCH physical channel to which the MTCH1 channel is mapped. The channel switching operation is performed. After the channel switching operation, the UE2 L1 / L2 layer receives MBMS data transmitted by the UTRAN6 L1 / L2 layer via the MTCH1 channel in step S308.

  As shown in FIG. 15B, UTRAN 6 enables transmission of MBMS-related control information through the main MCCH channel before setting up the MTCH0 channel for transmitting MBMS0 data. When the MTCH0 channel is set, UE2 receives MBMS0 data through MTCH0, and receives related control information through the main MCCH channel set on the same physical channel as the MTCH0 channel.

  As shown in FIG. 15C, the UTRAN 6 enables transmission of MBMS related control information through the main MCCH channel before setting up the MTCH1 channel for transmitting MBMS1 data. UE2 can acquire information necessary for setting the MCCH1 channel via the main MCCH channel, and can acquire information necessary for setting the MTCH1 channel via MCCH1 or the main MCCH channel. When MCCH1 and MTCH1 channel are set, UE2 receives MBMS1 data via MTCH1 channel, and receives MBMS1-related control information via MCCH1 channel set on the same physical channel as MTCH1 channel.

  16A and 16B illustrate methods 700, 800 for setting up an MCCH channel on UE2 according to a fifth embodiment of the present invention. As shown in FIG. 16A, UE2 obtains information necessary to set up a primary MCCH channel via a broadcast control channel such as BCH, a paging channel such as PCH or a page indicator channel such as PICH, and then To set the main MCCH channel. Since the MCCH channel is mapped to the same physical channel together with the MTCH channel, the participating UE 2 acquires information necessary for setting the MTCH channel to receive a packet data service, for example, MBMS, via the main MCCH channel.

  UE2 sets up the MTCH and MCCH logical channels using the channel information of the logical channels mapped to the same physical channel. UE2 receives the data of the packet data service via the MTCH channel and receives service related control information via the MCCH channel.

  As shown in FIG. 16B, UE2 sets the main MCCH channel by acquiring the main MCCH channel information through the BCH, PCH or PICH channel. In order to set up the MCCH channel, the participating UE 2 acquires the packet data service, eg, MBMS MCCH channel information, via the main MCCH channel. UE2 then receives packet data service data via the configured MCCH channel. UE2 then receives the corresponding service data via the MTCH channel.
